Good Beach Reading

I just got back from a wonderful vacation at the beach. Orange Beach, Alabama. It's so gorgeous there, and we had perfect weather. Only a couple of days with some rain.

I took time to read and relax. I spent a good bit of time on the beach, under an umbrella with my toes in the sand, reading great books. Two that I read that I really enjoyed were Mary Connealy's books: Golden Days and Petticoat Ranch. I think Golden Days was my favorite. I loved the spunky heroine. I also read and really enjoyed Home to Harmony by Philip Gulley. It just cracked me up. With my being a pastor's wife, I could really appreciate his humor.

Another book I forgot to pack but have been reading since I returned is Deeanne Gist's Courting Trouble. Very good so far. I can't wait to see what happens. I think one thing I really like about it is that it's not at all predictable.

Now I'm getting ready for the International Christian Retail Show in Atlanta, and then on to RWA National. I'm so excited to be attending ICRS for the first time. And what a thrill to finally be able to go to National and wear my pink "First Sale" ribbon! It's a dream come true.

If you're attending National for the first time, you might be interested in my last two posts on the F.A.I.T.H. blog about getting ready for conferences.

I'll write again after I get back and will hopefully have lots of info to share.
